DokiCam 360° 4K Camera Launches for Extreme Sports Enthusiasts

The DokiCam can be purchased for $230.

Last November, Suzhou, China-based DokiCam launched a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign for its 360-degree consumer camera. Called the DokiCam 360° Action Camera, the campaign was a success, and now the device has become available to purchase.

Entering a growing field of 360-degree cameras, the DokiCam has the ability to capture 4K (4896×2448) stills, 3K (2880×1440) video, livestream, and with the compatible iOS and Android app, one-click uploading to a users favourite social network like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The app also features several viewing modes such as Tiny Planet, VR, Fisheye, and Hemisphere 360° mode, which can all be previewed in real-time.

While the camera can be used to record anything and everything, it has been designed towards extreme sports enthusiasts with a rugged aluminum body and water/dust resistant seals – it’s achieved an IP54 rating. With a similar ball design to 2016’s Samsung Gear 360 and 360fly, the DokiCam weights in at 140g on its own, or 160g with the tripod. And to aid those adrenaline junkies the camera has a slightly raised shutter button for ease of use and it’s mountable to handlebars or helmets.

Available through the DokiCam website, the camera retails for $230 USD (approximately £178 GBP), making it competitively priced against rivals. And it comes with free worldwide shipping.

For consumers looking to purchase a 360-degree camera 2017 is going to offer plenty of options. There’s the new Samsung Gear 360, Acer has announced the Holo 360GIROPTIC iO, Vuze VR Camera or the 180-degree LucidCam to name a few.
